The latest leak comes from Rogame, who shared the details on Twitter. According to the leaker, Apple’s own code underlined its plans to equip the upcoming laptop with a chipset from Intel. The latest MacOS beta build, particularly the MacOS 10.15.5 Beta 1, reportedly contains several references to the said hardware.

The leaker notes indicators discovered in the laptop’s build as Intel Core I7-1065G7 and Intel Core i5-1035 G7. Last month, Apple released the 2020 MacBook Air housing Intel Ice Lake architecture with options for the i7-1060NG7, i5-1030NG7, and i3-100NG4. But, it has not yet released the new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

The most recent version of the premium Apple laptop still runs on Intel Coffee Lake architecture. It still houses the troublesome Butterfly keyboard. Moreover, the 13-inch MacBook Pro still lags behind other MacBook models. With the advanced technology on other models, its high time that Apple would have this rumored processor upgrade for the upcoming laptop model.2020 13-inch MacBook Pro Release Window

In a tweet posted in Apr.5, the leakster said that the next generation premium Apple laptop is coming “next month.” He also said that the upcoming hardware is a refresh of the current 13-inch MacBook Pro but with a 14-inch display.

Prosser also revealed in his tweet that the pre-production model number of the 2020 13-inch MacBook Pro is J223.
